Local-community advocate (nifty campaign slogan) Obama lost my confidence over several gives-away to big-money campaign donor gifters (grifters) when he introduced the ACA-Obamacare rather than universal health care.
C–Span hosted a discussion with Ukrainian religious leaders that seemed to reinforce one’s notion that institutionalized religion and government need to be recognized as the reason we need separation between religion and state.
The Hamas/Israeli War is revealing FACTS that until now have been easy to overlook. Have we returned to the times of Medieval warfare and governance, or did we never leave?
The glib action to “run government like a business” eventually moves into organized crime. Both the US government and foreign relations seem to have met this impasse.
One is encouraged that a member of MSNBC or any MSM has found the integrity to make the connection between colonization, ostensible human rights violations, exploitation, and Climate Change in the poster child of the same in the Hawaiian devastation we are watching unfold.
C-Span chose as their topic of call-in this morning, whether the abortion issue will influence your vote. This deflection is typical of MSM that is intent on promoting the Democratic/Republican duopoly.
C-Span–caller-9:37AM–paraphrase–I don’t trust white women (referring incoherently to feminism).
CEO’s per capita absorb more wealth from a company than do workers per capita. Logically AI should replace upper management rather than workers.
Call it yin and yang or cause and effect. The balance is crucial and out of whack in 2023.
The C-Span discussion about the Korean War was ushered in with an apparently government-inspired movie staging the pro-US perspective of our participation. The movie itself was a delightful reminder of one’s childhood in Upstate NY, where during so many auditorium-movie displays, students were mandated to watch hours of pro-capitalistic views that effectively indoctrinated into capitalism as democracy.
Governor Hochul has put into place an inducement for sex work. Sex work should be decriminalized. But more to the point, we need universal health care that would be less costly and more inclusive and that could serve more of We The People, including sex workers.
One heard on NPR recently, apparently in answer to complaints that Climate Change has been ignored by Establishment, that “scientists have warned us about Climate Change for years”. Thank you, NPR for this enlightenment; and apparently the broken link is MSM that hasn’t reported that which scientists have insisted.
As a child of the ’60’s, one has little to no confidence in militarized law enforcement. While most of us “studied” The Teapot Dome Affair in school, the depth and breadth of that scandal probably was glossed over so as to wall the essence away from student understanding.
In capitalistic hierarchical Establishment, the idea of utopia is dismissed as unattainable, regardless of the qualification of the American people as “exceptional”. And so policies are in place that actualize profits for the wealthy and pain for everyone else. This is indeed governmental/business policy, and nothing more. It is not accepted around the world. If not Utopia, how about a fair shake. Consider Europe.
